While the Galaxy Fold is a chunky foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip is expected to be thinner and more elegant. Bloomberg reported in September 2019 that Samsung's second foldable phone can shrink to a pocketable square when folded inwards. Purported photos of the device confirm the clamshell form factor with a hinge mechanism covering the gaps between the two folding halves.
Like the Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy Z Flip will have a hole-punch selfie camera in the center. The foldable display is smaller though at 6.7-inches with huge bezels around it. There is also a smaller display on the outside.
The 6.7-inch foldable display is said to use materials different from the current range of foldable phones. Bloomberg wrote that it would be using Ultra Thin Glass (UTG), a claim which is corroborated by tipster Ice Universe.
If true, the Galaxy Z Flip will be the first foldable phone in the world to use UTG and this material offers several benefits such as a more flat look, less wrinkles, fewer creases and better scratch resistance.
